You want to go further, fly out of the box?

This training course is for you! The program will focus on the ceiling, transitions, going up again, and piloting.

Here you will discover what is authorized and what is prohibited during paragliding Cross-country flights. What we mean by Initiation to Cross-country, for example, includes connecting flights between two well-known free flight sites. We start in the morning by working with you on interpreting the weather conditions. According to this interpretation, we will propose technical routes, simple at first, and then gradually more complex, in order to improve your expertise in terms of feasibility and engagement.


A full day of training, from 8:30am to 6pm (approximately)
